Sannyasa Peeth Events

Sannyasa Peeth was established by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati on 6th December 2010, to fulfil the third mission and vision of his Guru, Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

In the modern context sannyasa has to be interpreted in a practical, logical and systematic way. The purpose of sannyasa is to cultivate and to live the higher spiritual qualities.

Sannyasa Peeth will provide an opportunity for sincere aspirants to imbibe the right samskara, be exposed to traditional sadhanas and learn to apply teachings by adhering to an alternative spiritual lifestyle based on the principles and disciplines of sannyasa.

Sannyasa Peeth will be conducting various events and programs for the benefit of spiritual seekers, aspirants and devotees.
